Do MBB in europe hire experienced professionals from lower tier Management Consulting firms? If so, how many years of experience do they usually require?
Just joined Deloitte in July out of UG, but want to make move to MBB. Is it a good idea to start applying right away or do I need more experience before making the jump?
On getting into FAANG. For those who made the switch, what are the typical roles from, say, MBB? How did you go about it? What's needed on the resume if I'm planning 12 months out? Lvl and pay?
Does it bother you that the job market is so faddish? When I left college (pre-crisis) most wanted to work for a bank or MBB. Now all I hear about is FANG (but mostly G) and startups.
Does MBB have a strong presence in the DC area?
If you are a 32 year old Manager at consulting firm does it make sense to start as a Consultant or Associate at MBB? I am trying to understand if it makes sense to go a level down just for a more prestigious firm.
Those who want to join FAANG: don’t you think that the upward mobility is limited? Thousands of super ambitious MBB background people with top credentials joined these firms over the last decade.
In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
How’s the WLB in EYP TSE group ? Thinking of applying but have heard horror stories of MBB equivalent stress levels.EY-Parthenon
To those in non-MBB: Would you rather have an offer in hand right now for MBB or FAANG pm? Assume it’s a lateral transition.
Been in MBB for about six month, I can’t seem to get use to the 65-70 hr work weeks 😣 even an easy day leaves me exhausted. Anyone else feel this way?
I got a partner referral to MBB and am expecting to get a first round interview invite in several weeks. Unfortunately I've never done a real case in my life. How should I prepare?
Have tier 2 M&A strategy offers on the table and interested in exploring MBB. Any fish willing to chat??
Going to MBB from Tier 2...worth the switch?
At a B4 now. I want to stay in consulting. Should I be considering any other firms besides MBB and T2?
Need some advice - been at the D for a year and have been on the same implementation project for over a year. Have a technical background and am thinking of starting to look for exits to industry but also am curious what strategy projects are and if I would be interested in the work. Is it worth networking onto a strategy project at the D or should I just continue to look for industry exists and then go b school and then try for MBB/T2 ?
For MBB interviews, what is a good gauge to expect for quantitative complexity? The case study books all have cases ranging in complexity from easy to hard, but not sure if I’ll get absolutely floored by the real interview
Which of the MBB has the strongest presence in Utilities and Renewable energy? Any details on the types of projects? Would love to know if the firms client base differs by geographic region.
Anyone that’s jumped from the D to MBB, I am curious how different the work is? I love my team, project city, but I’m not interested in the project. How much better is the work at MBB at analyst lvl?
Thoughts on Google RTO office date? Will it be pushed back more than Jan 10 with the holiday season and all? Don’t want to relocate if we will be postponing RTO
Do you stay at a good firm with a good reputation where you are siloed in a back office role with no growth or go to a lesser known firm with less track record and opportunity to learn and grow? I’m in an extremely operational role and want to leave but the benefits down the line could be grand. How do you evaluate a decision like this?

Could someone share what a fair 1st year manager salary would be in TS? Assume a high COL metro area DC/NYC/LA/CH. Just the salary, not bonuses and whatnot.
Does anyone else feel like their burn-out cycle is shorter? It used to take me about 2 years of grind before I hit a burn-out phase where I needed to do some serious recuperating. It feels like I'm at 3 months now, or even less. I've already spoken to my wife about building quarterly mini-vacations into my schedule just to keep my energy up. And by burn-out, I mean you're at the point that every single ball you are juggling can drop and you get fired and almost see that as a blessing.
Any advice for recent/upcoming grads wanting to break into the industry but not able to find opportunities due to COVID? Thanks!
The risk of a pandemic happening seems like it's been known, at least conceptually, for a while. Not well-read on the details of the US healthcare system, but why didn't we have a plan for this?
if you can choose: 1. audit with definitely (know firsthand from a close friend) amazing company culture - mid market (overtime not encouraged, if you do need to do overtime you get hourly pay for it or can choose to exchange it as holiday, can potentially do secondment to FDD in the future but not guaranteed in terms of timeline 2. FDD with potentially shit company culture (partner scream at you for not rec ing excel sheets properly, sexist comments made - but all these info was from contd’

Are there any females here working at all male private equity or growth equity firms? I've been interviewing at a number of these shops and get so discouraged when I see no females or WOC (doesn't help that I come from a small boutique shop)
